Can't remember the English word for what you want to talk about? Simply go to OECD, type in the Chinese word and look up the English equivalents. There are also thematic illustrations to help extend your vocabulary.
 
Do you speak English or Chinglish? Use OECD to make sure you are speaking idiomatic English. In Chinese we might say 'open a cheque' - OECD will help you say 'issue/write/draw/make out a cheque'.
 
Want to express yourself better? OECD will find the right word for you and add variety to your language - so that you can make a quick decision, drive a fast car (not 'a quick car'!), take swift action, go for a brisk walk, and wish your friend a speedy recovery
 
Are you communicating effectively at work? Look up OECD to understand how words are used in different industries, and not get confused by words like customer, client and clientele, or security which may have different meanings in finance and law.

I don't write reviews but only do so when I have exceptional experience with the provided service. Someone replied promptly after I emailed the support to inquire a small issue I had with the app. It was solved instantly. I have used this dictionary for many years even long before this app was released. I do a lot of speech translation and after lots of searching I always find the best translation here. Highly recommend to ones who need a reliable EN-CH dictionary, both paper & app version.
